Work

About

  My work are based upon scientific experiments or observations. Conceptual and aesthetic pocket researches, where my work are often a result of multiple natural processes, which over a short or long period of time shape, finish or refine the object. I aspire to give my creations an authenticity and a psychedelic simplicity.

During the past few years I have worked with ritual and primitive artefacts, aberration in symmetry, permanent gesticulations and traces after processes.

 Born in 1979, educated as scenic painter at the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen (2000-2004)

  • Worked together with Christian Elovara in the art duo”Ultra Grøn” 2008-2012 (UG in CV)
  • Working at the artschool Billedskolen i Tvillingehallen, in Copenhagen
  • Member of BKF, Danish Visual Artists
